THE INSIDE STORY OF TOM BRADY'S SEASON OF REDEMPTION   AUTHOR EVENING WITH CASEY SHERMAN & DAVE WEDGE
FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 5-7PM

12: THE INSIDE STORY OF TOM BRADY'S SEASON OF REDEMPTION

Join us at the bookstore for what is sure to be an exciting evening and a great way to kick-off football season, especially for all of our Patriots fans out there! We will have both authors here discussing their latest collaboration, 12 along with some additional treats for all!
In January 2015, rumors circulated that the New England Patriots―a team long suspected of abiding by the "if you ain't cheating you ain't trying" philosophy―had used under-inflated footballs in their playoff victory against the Indianapolis Colts. As evidence began to build, however, a full-on NFL investigation was launched, exploding an unsubstantiated rumor into an intense scandal that would lead news coverage for weeks. As shockwaves rippled throughout the NFL system, the very legitimacy of one of the league's most popular teams and their star quarterback began to erode, even as the Patriots and Brady went on to win that year's Super Bowl. But as the celebrations gave way to the offseason, the investigation only intensified, reopening old wounds between the Patriots' powerful owner, Robert Kraft, and the NFL commissioner, Roger Goodell. Brady was devastated and seemingly more nervous in front of a judge that on a game-winning drive. When the dust settled, Brady would be able to play again ― but only after watching the first four games of the 2016 season from his couch.

12: The Inside Story of Tom Brady's Season of Redemption by Casey Sherman and Dave Wedge is the propulsive story of this gritty comeback. It's a drama that unfolds in the locker room, the court room, and under the brightest lights in all of sports― the Super Bowl. Now for the first time, readers will have an exclusive look at Brady's experience and the NFL's shocking strangle-hold on their players. With unprecedented access to Brady himself, his teammates, and his lawyers, we will see just how a football legend went up against one of the largest corporations in the world to stage the greatest comeback in NFL history and emerge a god of the gridiron.

ABOUT THE BOOK:
What if the nightmares are actually memories?

It's been a year since Poppy's husband, Jack, was brutally murdered during his morning run through Manhattan's Riverside Park. In the immediate aftermath, Poppy spiraled into an oblivion of grief, disappearing for several days only to turn up ragged and confused wearing a tight red dress she didn't recognize. What happened to Poppy during those lost days? And more importantly, what happened to Jack?

The case was never solved, and Poppy has finally begun to move on. But those lost days have never stopped haunting her. Poppy starts having nightmares and blackouts--there are periods of time she can't remember, and she's unable to tell the difference between what is real and what she's imagining. When she begins to sense that someone is following her, Poppy is plunged into a game of cat and mouse, determined to unravel the mystery around her husband's death. But can she handle the truth about what really happened?

Join us in the woods, October 3rd, for what is sure to be a thrilling evening with these two bestselling authors!

We are so excited for the new release of the latest Hilda book in the series, HILDA AND THE HIDDEN PEOPLE by Luke Pearson coming out September 4. AND Hilda will now be a new children's TV series on Netflix this fall so we decided to show the first episode right here at the bookstore on Sunday, October 14 at 2pm and 4pm.

It's a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon and to be introduced to the series and to see this fun character come to life! We will be holding a raffle at the end of the second screening for all those that attended and entered that day for a Hilda doll and copy of the new book! This series is geared towards middle grades (ages 8-13).

Join our beloved heroine as she encounters her very first troll, negotiates peace with some very persnickety elves, and reunites two lovelorn ancient giants. Fantastic creatures and daring adventures are all just part of another average day for Hilda, but what will she do if she is forced to move to Trolberg city, far away from her beloved valley home? Dive into the adventure with this illustrated chapter book, based on the first two episodes of the show.


WHERE YOU’LL FIND ME by New Hampshire author, Ty Gagne.  

ONE BOOK, ONE VALLEY
KENNETT HIGH SCHOOL
THURSDAY, OCTOBER 25 AT 7PM

This is the 13th Annual One Book One Valley program and this year’s book will be WHERE YOU’LL FIND ME by New Hampshire author, Ty Gagne.
The mission of this program is to strengthen community ties and promote literacy through reading and discussing a book with a theme that resonates locally. The vision: Imagine if folks throughout Mount Washington Valley read the same book. Then talked about it. And THEN got to come together to meet the author at a special valley-wide event. One Book One Valley is successful because of you, the individual reader, and YOU, our community of readers, coming together.

ABOUT THE BOOK:
On February 15, 2015, Kate Matrosova, an avid mountaineer, set off before sunrise for a traverse of the Northern Presidential Range in New Hampshire's White Mountains. Late the following day, rescuers carried her frozen body out of the mountains amid some of the worst weather ever recorded on these deceptively rugged slopes.
At 32, she was ultra-fit and healthy and had already summited much larger mountains on several continents. Her gear included a rescue beacon and a satellite phone. Yet, despite their best efforts, forty-two expert search and rescue personnel, a New Hampshire Army National Guard Blackhawk helicopter, and a Civil Air Patrol Cessna airplane could not reach her in time to save her.
What went wrong? Where You'll Find Me offers possible answers to that question, demonstrating why Matrosova's story - what we know and what we will never know - represents such an intriguing and informative case study in risk analysis and decision-making.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Ty Gagne is chief executive officer of New Hampshire Public Risk Management Exchange (Primex3), a public entity risk pool serving local governments in New Hampshire. He is a certified wilderness first responder, and serves on the Androscoggin Valley Search and Rescue Team and Board of Directors. He lives in New Hampshire with his wife.

BOOK GROUPS AND EVENT:
We will be reading and discussing this book for our October Mystery Book Group and encourage anyone to join us at the bookstore on October 11 at 7pm for our discussion. Or be sure to connect with another book group in town at one of your local libraries!
Then meet us all at Kennett High School on Thursday, October 25 at 7pm to hear author Ty Gagne!
